This year our wine event will be held in conjunction with the Royal Montreal Curling Club. They are celebrating the 125th anniversary of the founding of the Ladies Montreal Curling Club in 1894.

In this educational wine experience, he will share his understanding and evaluation of conventional, organic, natural and biodynamic winemaking techniques and highlight the unique barriers women face beyond the challenges that already exist in a generally male dominated industry. His exposé encourages us to be more aware of broader industry practices, additives in winemaking and the growing contribution of women in the wine industry.
